Your Guide for Things To Do in Tampa With a Baby
Whether you’re planning a getaway trip or visiting family or celebrating a milestone, Tampa is a hot destination. With a baby, your day may not be so go with the flow, so planning ahead or being familiar with the surrounding area can help your trip go smoother. From traveling to Tampa to planning the day-to-day, Tushbaby can offer much-needed support to make life with a baby easier, especially on the go. Before you plan your trip to Tampa with a baby, consider the various scenarios that could arise and how you can be prepared with a baby. For example, boarding a plane with a baby in tow. With plenty of distractions around you, it can be helpful to have extra support carrying your baby. While you may have ruled out a traditional carrier because of the many straps involved or restrictions it places on accessing your baby, The Tushbaby can provide support while keeping things simple.
The Tushbaby features an adjustable waistband that velcros and buckles high and tight above the hips. The baby can sit on the plush hip seat while being supported with one or both hands of the wearer. It’s easy to sit and stand with the Tushbaby, and just as easy to place your baby on the carrier or take them off. The Tushbaby is one the best baby carriers for travel. The Tushbaby features storage pockets so you can keep your go-to items (such as The Snug) nearby. With The Snug attachment, you can convert the Tushbaby into a hands-free baby carrier. Another Tushbaby essential that can help you travel like a pro with a baby is our foldable changing pad – which can fold up small enough to fit in your pants pocket. At Tushbaby, we understand life with a baby, and we use real-life applications to create every product.
Before you make your packing list, think through some of the things you might do in Tampa with a baby. As you pin ideas, consider the things you might need to bring along for the adventure. When you’re ready, pack your bags and venture to Tampa, Florida. Tushbaby will have your baby every step of the way - if you let us, of course!
Fun Things To Do in Tampa With a Baby
Visit one of Tampa’s beautiful beaches
Visiting one of Tampa’s glorious beaches can make for a relaxing and memory-filled day. From an obligatory baby sunglasses photo opp to a picnic with the sound of waves crashing, the beach is fun for the whole family. The downside can be that going to the beach with a baby can be messy – but we’ll let you decide if it’s worth it. If you plan to visit the beach with a baby, be prepared. If you’re traveling, you may need to rent some of the items, such as a shade tent, to protect your baby’s delicate skin. Our foldable changing pad can provide a clean surface for diaper changes at the beach. Since our Tushbaby or Tushbaby Lite hip seat carrier folds up for easy storage, you might be able to find room in your beach bag for it. As you trudge through the sand with a baby and all the things in tow, you might need some extra support. Babywearing at the beach is a thing, and with the Tushbaby or Tushbaby Lite, your baby carrier can double as breastfeeding support and storage too. The Tushbaby Lite is a smaller version of our classic Tushbaby, perfect for outdoor adventures like the beach. The Tushbaby and Tushbaby Lite strap on high and tight above the hips and feature a multifunctional hip seat, making it easy and comfortable to rock that bathing suit and baby all at once.
Beat the Tampa heat with extraordinary indoor playgrounds at the Playgrounds of Tampa. From open play hours to parents’ night out, Playgrounds of Tampa is a playful activity for Tampa visitors. Let the kids play while you enjoy a coffee from the on-site cafe or drop your baby off during parents' night out to check out a local restaurant (adult style). To go from being mommy to wifey, tote our stylish vegan leather Totebaby, designed to hold all of the things while disguising just how functional it really is.
The Bayshore Boulevard is an iconic attraction in Tampa with 4.5 miles of scenic views that parallel Tampa Bay. As one of the longest strands of continuous sidewalks in the United States, you can pass by some of Tampa’s most prestigious homes, many on the National Historic Register. With a 10-foot wide sidewalk, you can pack your stroller up for sightseeing. When your baby is in the stroller though, it can be hard to interact or see all the priceless reactions. Pack along a supportive baby carrier to enhance the experience. The Tushbaby folds up for easy storage and can be strapped on with one buckle and velcro strap above the hips. With four carrying positions and no dangling straps, it’s ideal for the days that call for a mix of babywearing and not-babywearing. Plus, you can wear the Tushbaby whether you’re babywearing or not. For days when you have a stroller in tow, the Tushbaby Lite may be suitable for the occasion. As a smaller version of the traditional Tushbaby, it can offer equal support while taking up less space.
There’s a lot to learn about manatees, such as they are the closest relative to the elephant. As a USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice travel award choice, this free attraction in Tampa is a popular one. Using Live Webcams, you can check to see if the manatees are at the center before stopping by. The Tidal Walk can get crowded, so you may want to opt for babywearing instead of a bulky stroller. The Tushbaby can be worn with baby on the hip or front-facing, allowing them to see their surroundings and making it easy to interact with them. Comfortably carry your baby with support, and store your things in the storage pockets as you observe the manatees. Need to stop to feed in public? Find a comfortable bench, draw your nursing cover from a Tushbaby storage packet, and use the Tushbaby feeding position for breastfeeding support.
For long days of exploring, you may need stretches of hands-free babywearing, especially for nap time. Pair The Snug attachment with the Tushbaby for hands-free babywearing. When not in use, you can stash it in one of the five storage pockets of the Tushbaby. Our Crossbody Strap may also come in handy as it hooks to the Tushbaby, so you can wear it over your shoulder when not in use. For days on the go or while traveling, this can keep your baby carrier close while keeping your hands free.
